Here's the latest in my jewelry collection. These beads are sort of shimmery with rich colors and I like them and the necklace a lot.

I'm feeling a bit on edge. I have two papers to present at a conference tomorrow...I was in charge of one, coauthor in charge of the other. Yesterday co-author emails that he's sick and can't present. And he hadn't done the powerpoint yet. So guess what I am doing today?
